SNORING AND SLEEP APNOEA

If you (or somebody close to you!) suffers from snoring, we may be able to help find a solution to this problem. Snoring occurs when air does not flow smoothly through the air passages, or when the soft tissues or muscles in the throat vibrate during sleep.

Some snorers suffer from obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). This is a more serious condition than snoring that involves frequent sleep interruptions, with resultant fatigue during the day. It may be associated with long term health problems such as an increased risk of heart attack or stroke. 

Snoring or OSA may be treated with a removable mouth appliance. This usually keeps the tongue and lower jaw forward and away from the back of the mouth/airway. Best practice requires that a sleep study be undertaken before appliances are made.

We can assess patients and provide you with an initial questionnaire regarding snoring. This can then be taken to your GP, who if deemed necessary, can request a sleep study. The results of the latter will determine treatment options.
